Former Super Eagles captain, Kanu Nwankwo stated that Arsenal Football Club made a huge mistake by selling Alex Iwobi to Everton.
Kanu Nwankwo believes that Arsenal should have kept Iwobi, who has been with the Gunners since he was eight years.
Alex Iwobi left the Arsenal for Everton on the transfer deadline day, in a deal which amounts to £40million ($49m).
According to Kanu, the decision to cash in on the 23-year-old was a wrong one.
“I would say they made a mistake, 100 per cent.
“Why they let him go, I don’t know.
“He’s a boy who, in and out, is Arsenal. He always wanted to do his best for the club. He loves the club, but not only that he can play football.
“What he brings week in, week out, the fans need to appreciate that.
“I think he is still young and those are the type of people you want in the team, people who grew up here, who knows everything about the club and wants to die for the club.
“He was one of them, so for us to lose him and to let him go, was a shock. I couldn’t really believe we did it, but that’s football,” he said.
